Most Popular Mother’s Day Gifts in Every State

   

People across the U.S. will celebrate their moms this Sunday with flowers, cards or breakfast in bed—and, at least in Alaska, they may add some heartfelt words of poetry too.

 

“Love poem” was the most uniquely searched Mother’s Day gift in Alaska in recent years, according to a Google analysis of search data by state from 2004 to 2017.

 

Love was a theme in many of the top-searched gift ideas, including a “forever heart necklace” in Ohio—but food was even bigger, with popular presents including “chocolate strawberries” in Washington, D.C., “chocolate gift baskets” in Mississippi and “edible fruit arrangements” in Oregon. Some states went for the opposite tack, with Mother’s Day shoppers in New Jersey searching for “fitness trackers” and those in North Dakota searching for “healthy cookbooks.”

 

And then there were some more unusual ones: Connecticut’s top item was a “garden animal statue,” while Pennsylvania’s was “sheepskin pillow” and Wyoming’s was “tea infuser.”
